Choosing the right carpet size is a very important determinant for the decoration concept of a room. Of course, the carpet design has a big impact, but the size of the carpet is equally important if you imagine how the furniture fits in the room. Small carpet sizes allow the furniture to overwhelm the room, while large carpets affect the look of the furniture.

Functions that affect the placement of carpets

Various factors affect the placement of carpets such as the arrangement of furniture and the arrangement of the carpet. You need to decide if the carpet should fill most of the room or just the high traffic areas or just the conversation areas. If the living room furniture is in the middle of the room, a large rug is perfect to put all furniture on the carpet. When the furniture is near the walls, the front legs of the sofas and chairs are placed in a seating arrangement on the carpet that unifies the furniture.

In this way, the carpet connects the different pieces of furniture and creates a feeling of proportions. Sometimes you can also use a very small rug to add a small pattern to the space just below the center table, while the sofas and chairs are removed from the carpet for a different look. Another way to place a carpet size is to cover the entire floor area with the carpet, leaving only about 30 cm between the carpet and the walls.


The carpets for the bedroom should be big enough to go about one meter around the king or queen bed. Sometimes a small carpet at the foot of the bed adds a small pattern to the room. For the dining area, carpets should be large enough for the table and chairs to fit comfortably on the carpet. In fact, the carpet should be quite large so that the chairs will remain on the carpet when pulled back. The walkway in the entrance or hallway should have a carpet that covers most of the room with only the sides.

Although there are several rules that can help you decide on the right size of a surface carpet. But what appeals to you should be the guideline to get the look you want.
